Meet the author! Read You Don’t Know How Lucky You Are: An Adoptee’s Journey Through the American Adoption Experience by Rudy Owens. Nearly 50 years after he was relinquished for adoption, Rudy Owens learned how fortunate life can be. In 2014 in San Diego, Owens met his biological half-sister for the first time. That meeting inspired Owens to tell his adoption story set against the larger adoption narrative that has impacted millions of adoptees, their birth parents, and their collective biological and adoptive families.
